We are aware and fully acknowledge that over the years, there have been hateful actions and

words that have caused tension within our Greek and campus community. While we know that

these incidents are not specific to one council that does not mean that each council does not

have a responsibility to respond. Furthermore, we acknowledge that these incidents have had

and continue to have varying effects on individual members, particularly our minority members

within each of the four the Greek Councils. We also recognize that there are members of our

Alabama community who are not Greek affiliated who have been heavily affected, and we

support these individuals as well. This is not the time for silence, finger-ˇpointing, or ignoring the

issue at hand. There must be a culture change within our community and each of the Greek

Governing Councils has a responsibility to uphold what it means to respect member individuality

and create a truly diverse and welcoming atmosphere for all those who attend the Capstone.

We are more than saddened and apologetic about the recent racially biased incident. We

acknowledge the feelings of not only the Greek community, but also the greater campus as a

whole. We respect the anger and calls for change that have been made and we intend to work

together to achieve a climate of acceptance, respect, and inclusivity, which is free from hatred

and bigotry. Not only do these actions not represent our values, they do not fall in line with the

expectations we have for our members. Most importantly, this malicious behavior does not align

with The University of Alabama Capstone Creed and as such, cannot and should not be

tolerated.

Moving forward, we expect our members and our member organizations to evaluate and uphold

their accountability processes. With the National Pan-ˇHellenic Council being an integral part of

the UA Greek community, there is an increased expectation and demand that these acts of

hatred come to an end. The recurrence of incidents of this nature and the problems within our

community and campus culture are things that we recognize and collectively aim to

eliminate. Words must be backed by action;; therefore, it is important that together, we create a

foundation of human decency and respect that begins with the recruitment of members and

includes collaborative involvement amongst organizations and councils, which includes a robust

accountability process.

The Alabama Panhellenic Association has high expectations for our council leaders, member

organizations, and individual members. Our Code of Ethics outlines the ways in which our

members are expected to behave and our chapters are expected to exercise accountability, in

order to foster an inclusive community. APA demands that any member organization that fails to

meet these standards fully evaluate the state of the chapter and recommends that the

inter/national organization enact the following changes:

• A full membership review of the chapter. This review should be done with the

intention of realigning the values and beliefs of individual members with the

organization as whole.

• During this time and in the following semesters, we expect to see a loss of social

privileges for both on and off-ˇcampus social events, including but not limited to

cohosted events, sorority sponsored events, and partnered competitions such as

Greek Week and Homecoming. This time should be used to reconsider the goals

and identity of the chapter.

• A complete evaluation of the membership selection process. This should include

an examination of the way decisions are made during recruitment, to include the

values, beliefs, and identities of the women being recruited.

Alabama Panhellenic Association President
